Genea-Journal - 12/05/07

This was a very full genealogy day for me, with the CVGS Board meeting in the morning, followed by lunch with several colleagues, then home to work on blogging and other stuff.

8:30 am - Read my email and Bloglines. Wrote my post for the Advent Calendar on Genea-Musings - about Santa Claus. Got ready for the Board meeting, and left at 9:40 to the post office, then the library. The meeting started at 10 and we didn't finish until 12 noon - lots of things to discuss and plan - like all of 2008. Then went to lunch with four colleagues.

1:30 pm - home from the lunch, read my email and Bloglines again. There is an interesting conversation going on on the APG mailing list about periodical editorial ethics. Posted my NFL picks on my other blog - took an hour to do everything. Posted about "The Essex Genealogist" TOC. Then it was time for Linda to read her email and for me to take a short nap before dinner.

6:30 pm - Read my email and Bloglines again. A CVGS colleague passed a research question to me - I looked up some info in the "They Became Americans" and emailed it back to her. Later, I posted a Dear Genea-Man entry about it on Genea-Musings. I finished my Journal printing of the last page. Then I scanned 45 pages from Aunt Gerry's third album. Finally, I saw Becky's post about the Santa Claus blog and had to post about that - I like it! Now I need to finish this and post it, check my stats, and go do the dishes and read my book.

Genealogy today -- 10 hours, of which 1.5 hours were blogging, 4.0 hours were CVGS related, 2.0 hours were scanning, 1.0 hours was research, and 1.5 hours was reading email and Bloglines. All of my hour quotes are just estimates, but highly accurate to the nearest half hour - a SWAG (Super Wild-A$$ Guess for those non-engineers in the reading room).
